Quick Catch Up

Hello Fudgey Friends,

How is everyone? Can you believe tomorrow is Friday already? It's been such a quick but long week - if that makes sense. I've been at work till 7pm the last 3 nights - but I feel like I'm kind of making progress. I've promised myself I will leave at 5 tomorrow though :-)

First off - I've had another blog award:

The Happy 101 award!

There were a few guidelines;
1. Post who gave you the award:
Laura at Box Run Eat gave me the award. Thank-you! Fab blog. Go check it out :-)

2. Name ten things you like:

Mr Fudgey
Our Cats
Colin - my personal trainer
My fab friends
Circuits class
Strictly come dancing
Wonder Woman

3. Give this award to ten other people and notify them with a comment (in no particular order):
Marathon Maiden's Blog
Healthy Amy - Running in Pink
JAG's fitness blog
Gym Ninja
Fit & Fabulous at 40
Lovelie's mission for the perfect figure
Tara's health & fitness blog
Rachel's Races
Run like a girl & mean it

Now for a very quick update:
I ran on Monday & Tuesday - just short runs on the treadmill at lunchtime as that was all I could fit in.
On Tuesday I was raging as I had stayed home in the morning to wait for Bishopsmove to quote me for a removal & they didn't turn up. I waited till 9.10am - appointment was 8.30am.
Thankfully Colin managed to find a PT slot for me on Wednesday morning - it was weird getting up & leaving in the pitch black & it was pouring with rain - but I had a great session - just what the doctor ordered.
fast 1 min on treadmill (11.5kmph) with 12 weighted squat jumps & 45 second ski sit - repeat 5 times
3 x superset of 20 backward lunges from bench with 10kg dumbbells & maximal bench squat for 1 min with 25lb weight (managed 34, 39 & 41)
3 x tri set of 12 swissball obliques with 10kg weight, 12 russian twists with 6kg medicine ball & 30 second each side star side plank
finishing with 2 sets of 20 supermans on swissball & 12 back extensions with 6kg medicine ball

Then I bounced off to work where I had a great day - wonder if the project can afford to send me for PT everyday before work - they'd get the benefit as I was so up all day :-)

Then fantastic Mr Fudgey took me out for some food after work & bought me a Wonder Woman t-shirt. Thanks Hubbly :-)

Today I've rested up, had hoped to squeeze in a quick run if I'd finished work earlier but got caught up in stuff & was there till 7 again. Going to try for a morning gym (upper body) session tomorrow & then will be resting ahead of Sunday's Kilomathon.

Well folks it's 10.30 so gonna get my little fudgey butt off to bed.

Take Care everyone
